Congresswoman Victoria Spartz on Zelensky's Weaknesses

"You congresswoman spots have been very forthright in your recent statement. You said the following in your second of three points, president zelensky, has to stop playing politics and theater and start governing to better support his military and local governments. Please, would you expand upon the weaknesses of his current leadership and what needs to be done differently? Well, I kind of expect you saying, you know, and I actually ran them if I partisan cadel right before the war and we had information. And this was very public information that Russia has grown to attack. I can provide reasonable now that maybe mainly just, you know, the key was to explain that they didn't want to have panic, although you know what, you know, welcome and you've been in the war for 8 years. We did more preparation than I was in focus. You handled like a drill that America could, you know, attack us, you know, pretty much all the time in school taught how to put AK-47 together less than 45 seconds and using gas masks and everything else. So regardless of what it is, you have to have people riding, but regardless what's happened before. It's very surprised for me that Ukraine was not included in the war mode because you are in a real war if you maybe have a different assessment before. You need to put your people industry every Ukraine and have to work for efforts to be able to win this war. And I haven't seen this evidence, and I was very surprised as soon as Kyiv started to get involved by ballistic rockers saying, you know, I was surprised to see that a lot of people tried to live their lives as usual, which I understand you get tired of war, but unfortunately your wife and children get them killed right, kidnap human traffic. You have told us a guy on the front line. The economy is getting destroyed. Your country is on the huge attack. You can not have life as usual until you win the war.

Charlie and Colonel Macgregor Dissect the Invasion of Ukraine

"Early on, we tried to warn people that the west getting involved in the Russian Ukrainian war, Putin's invasion of rush of Ukraine would be a mistake. We condemned the invasion from a moral standpoint, but we said that this will only cost more lives that this could have been solved if zelensky would have allowed elections to occur in the eastern part of Ukraine and allowing those provinces, those territories would be part of Russia. But where are we today? $56 billion that we know of have been appropriated towards this. We don't even know where the money's been spent. And unfortunately, it seems as if Putin says he's only getting started with us to help unpack this as someone who has been a very clear and courageous voice. Since the very beginning of this conflict, it is colonel McGregor, colonel. Welcome back to the program. Thanks, Charlie. So colonel, let me ask this question, what is the current state of affairs on the ground in Ukraine because it's very murky if you just read western press. And then secondly, is it true that Putin is only getting started in Ukraine? Well, let's answer the first one first. He currently controls, I would argue all of the traditional Russian areas that are inhabited or populated with Russian speakers as you pointed out earlier. This is the area that if you held a plebiscite back in 2014 would have undoubtedly voted to join Russia or voted for some form of independence. So from Putin's standpoint, he's largely achieved his aims. The only two objectives that remain are kharkov up in the north, which is historically a Russian city and Odessa in the south, which is historically Russian. Now the reason I say he plans to ultimately take those two as the totality of his interest is that he is largely withdrawn, about 70 to 80% of Russian army combat forces. The forces on the ground that are effectively mopping up Ukrainian forces are for the most part Russian separatists from the two autonomous republics that had already tried to break away from Kyiv and were subsequently recognized this year by Moscow as independent.

"See how much you could save. Ukraine's war is now concentrated near its eastern border, and that is where the country's president appeared over the weekend. Video released today shows Vladimir zelensky visiting frontline troops. He's wearing his signature green army T-shirt. He urges his troops to win, though not at any cost. He asked them to stay safe when they can, since the land means nothing, without its people. NPR's Greg myrie is following the visit. Obviously, this was not announced in advance. He traveled to near the town of severo Donetsk. That's very much within Russian artillery range. The city has been the scene of the heaviest fighting the past couple of weeks. So he was just a few miles west of those troops, but also Russian troops were pretty close in the north and the south. He was really in the thick of it. He met with troops. He stopped in two other towns as well. He met civilians also and said, quote, I'm proud of everybody I met. Everyone I shook hands with. Everyone whom I connected with. Now this is hundreds of miles from the capital Kyiv and he presumably traveled by road, really reflects the critical phase of fighting in the east right now. Well, let's talk about that. What makes this a critical phase? Well, the Russians have really concentrated their firepower in not only in the east, but in a pretty particular part of the east around this city of severo Donetsk, the Russians have been advancing and in just a few days ago, even the Ukrainian leaders were saying Russia had about 80% of this city. It appeared likely to fall over the weekend. Ukraine said they pushed back, recaptured part of the city, and even just before we spoke this morning here, the political leader came out and said, Ukraine is suffering some setbacks. So this is a very tough fight for this city, the absolute focal point of the war right now. So zelensky was near there. It is, of course, pretty significant that the president goes so near the front lines, but we should mention Greg that because of Russian missiles, zelensky is always within Russian range and wasn't there some evidence of that in Kyiv. Yeah, absolutely, Steve. Keith hadn't come under attack for more than a month, and that lull ended at dawn on Sunday morning when four Russian cruise missiles slammed into four separate buildings at a large railway compound that repairs broken train cars. Now the Russians said they destroyed tanks and armored vehicles, the Ukrainians said this wasn't true and they invited journalists to come see for themselves and including me. We found caved in roofs, collapsed brick walls everywhere you walk. There was glass crunching underfoot. When building was still smoldering, but we saw absolutely no sign of weapons. So something was destroyed, but maybe not what the Russians claimed. Of course, Kyiv remains under Ukrainian control. What is happening in parts of the country that are under Russian control? Right, we don't hear much about that because once the Russians take over, becomes a bit of a black hole. Let's talk for a moment about Mario. I think many of our listeners remember the heavy fighting there or that took place before the Ukrainian surrendered. We spoke with the mayor, Vadim boychenko. He's here in Kyiv, but still in touch with citizens. And he said life there is just miserable beyond words. So he's saying that the water system is broken. It's almost impossible to find drinking water, food is scarce. There's no electrical power or cell phone service and Russia's blocking residents from leaving. So all in all, a terrible situation there. And pierce Greg myrie is in Kyiv Gregg, thanks for the update. My pleasure. I'm Gregory Warner, hosted the podcast rough translation on our new season.

"Early in Russia's invasion of Ukraine reports began circulating about the prowess of a particular Ukrainian fighter pilot. Christened with the evocative and ominous nickname the ghost of Kyiv, he was said to have shot down as many as ten Russian jets in the first few days of the war. The ghost of Kyiv was slammed up by a few plausible seeming sources. Ukraine's former president Petro Poroshenko tweeted an image of a fighter pilot, although rendered unidentifiable by Helmut visor and respirator claiming it was the ghost. Ukraine's intelligence service the SBU published the same picture on its social media channels suggesting that he was the ghost of Kyiv preparing for or just back from another duel in Ukraine skies. Ukraine's Ministry of Defense disseminated combat footage claimed to have been filmed from the cockpit of the ghost's MiG 29. At which point the ghost of Kyiv's story rather ran away with itself, it was said that he had shot down as many as 40 Russian aircraft, songs hastily composed in his honor were uploaded to YouTube. I know he will never die the ghost of king others here images and memes flooded social media, a model aeroplane kit became available. A minor online cottage industry of ghost of Kyiv t-shirts, coffee mugs, and other ephemera sprang quickly up. This week, Ukraine's air force command decided to exorcise the ghost of Kyiv. This was apparently prompted by rumors that the ghost was major Stepan taraba, a Ukrainian pilot shot down and killed on March 13th and posthumously awarded the order of the gold star of the hero of Ukraine medal. Though alka's death and the honor were announced on March 25th, the connection between taraba and the ghost of Kyiv only seems to have been made by the collective online consciousness in recent days. The Ukrainian air force command statement clarified that taraba was not the ghost and had not shot down 40 plains. The ghost of Kyiv was actually the statement explained a superhero legend whose character was created by Ukrainians. The real ghost of Kyiv, they suggested was the entire 40th tactical aviation brigade of Ukraine's air force. The unit defending the skies above the capital. You can see what they're trying to do here. Keep in some way the ghost alive and fair enough. They have a water wind. Public spirit to maintain, but it's another part of the Ukraine air force command statement that everyone would do well to heed. We ask the Ukrainian community not to neglect the basic rules of information hygiene, they said. Check the sources of information before spreading it. Crazy thought, let's see if it catches on, et cetera. But had people done this from the start, the ghost would never have got airborne. The much retweeted photo of the ghost was years old. The combat footage was from a video game, and the numbers claimed for the ghost of Kyiv were wildly improbable in that no acknowledged fighter aces of the jet age have got anywhere near them. Certainly not in just a few weeks of combat. The closest real-life approximation of the ghost of Kyiv, IE the whole protector of the skies of the nation under siege thing, is possibly general giora Epstein, a mirage pilot of the Israeli Air Force with confirmed downings of 16 Egyptian jets and one Egyptian helicopter, but that was across three wars between 1967 and 1973. It is not difficult to see why the ghost of Kyiv took, if you will, off. Since aerial combat began in World War I, the fighter pilot has enjoyed a luster bestowed upon no other variety of warrior. And in this specific instance, the ghost served as a relatable personification of Ukraine's indisputably heroic against the odds defense, an almost literal David facing down the Russian Goliath. People believed it for the same reason that most people believe most things. IE that they very much hoped it was true. And sometimes, though not that often, it is. Also early in the current war, the story emerged of the doughty if in decorous Ukrainian defenders of snake island. The yarn spun was that a small contingent of Ukrainian troops stationed on this Black Sea outcrop were instructed to surrender by the Russian navy crews and mosque for replied with cheerfully profaned defiance and were killed. It had every appearance of a too good to be true propaganda myth, and was widely related by social media users and actual media outlets who clearly regarded it as too good to check. But it seems to have been true more or less aside happily from the detail of the defender's martyrdom. At least some were taken alive and at least one Roman rib of, whose famous admonishment to the mosque for now adorns a Ukrainian postage stamp was returned to Ukraine in a prisoner swap. The tale has even been furnished with a piquant conclusion with the subsequent sinking of the mosfet by Ukrainian missiles. Wars are strange confusing and chaotic things. It is not always entirely clear what happened even decades after the last shots were fired. But in any ongoing conflict, there are many more ghosts of Kyiv than there are snake islands, and it is sensible to regard claims made by all protagonists with an appropriate amount of skepticism. Perhaps especially when we want to believe them. For monocle 24, I'm Andrew Muller..

"By UN secretary general Antonio Guterres. By David Keaton and ina Veronica, Associated Press, Kyiv Ukraine. Russia pounded targets from practically one end of Ukraine to the other Thursday, including Kyiv, bombarding the city while the head of the United Nations was visiting in the boldest attack on the capital, since Moscow's forces retreated weeks ago. Nearly a dozen people were wounded in the attack on Kyiv, including one who lost a leg and others who were trapped in the rubble, when two buildings were hit, rescue officials said. The bombardment came barely an hour, after Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky held a news conference with UN secretary general Antonio Guterres, who said Ukraine has become an epicenter of unbearable heartache and pain. A spokesperson said Guterres and his team were safe. Meanwhile, explosions were reported across the country, and palone in the west, chernihiv, near the border with Belarus, and fast eve, a large railway hub, southwest of the capital, the mayor of Odessa in southern Ukraine, said rockets were intercepted by air defenses. Ukrainian authorities also reported intense Russian fire and the Donbass, the eastern industrial heartland that the Kremlin says is its main objective. And near kharkiv, a northeastern city outside the Don pass that is seen as key to the offensive. In the ruined southern port city of mariupol, Ukrainian fighters holed up in the steel plant that represents the last pocket of resistance, said concentrated bombing overnight killed and wounded more people, and authorities warned that a lack of safe drinking water inside the city could lead to outbreaks of deadly diseases, such as cholera, and dysentery. In separation, a crucial way station for tens of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing mariupol an 11 year old boy was among at least three people wounded in a rocket attack that authorities said was the first to hit a residential area in the southern city since the war began.

"Hey, skim this listeners. I'm Bridget Armstrong. Host of another skin podcast. You're going to want to queue up. It's called pop culture with the skin. In every Tuesday, we go deep on a culture story you need to know about. This week, we break down the situation with WNBA superstar Brittany griner. She's currently being detained in Russia. We get into why she was there in the first place. Search for pop culture with the skin on whatever podcast app you love. If you're a fan of flashy reality shows about travel. We are heading to Iceland. Cheers to grief. I think the only thing I'm gonna really enjoy about you guys being in Cuba. I can have some peace and quiet. Or you're in need of some Real Housewives worthy drama. I'm not talking to you. That's not enough. We've got the show for you. Meet drive to survive. Okay, wait. A show about Formula One car racing? Hear us out. I knew sort of what Formula One was. It was in this hazy motor sport bubble alongside NASCAR. That's Carrie batten, a staff writer for The New Yorker. She, like myself, hadn't really heard of Formula One racing. And had very little desire to watch fancy cars go around a track. But then, our Netflix algorithms got the best of us, and we started to get hooked. First, on the show, but then on the sport as a whole. Here's the deal. Formula One has been around since the 1950s, and the key difference between F one and some other motor sports like NASCAR is the cars. They're lighter and faster. Q, some high-speed drama. What drew me in was this idea that this incredible sport and Petri dish of drama was kind of hiding in plain sight. And Formula One is also a sport where the drama levels are high and the storylines are really easy to grasp because there are only 20 drivers. There are only ten teams and there are 20 races a year. So the competition is kind of laid bare all the time. There's not a million statistics to keep track of. Adding to that appeal is the eye candy. We're talking about the locations, of course. It's an incredibly glamorous sport because these drivers and these teams are flying between Monaco and Azerbaijan and Belgium and Switzerland, and they're all these very young, hot blooded, often good-looking guys who are just in this intense pressure cooker all the time. So not only do they have competitive energy between them, they also have personal relationships with one another because a lot of these men have been racing together since they were two or three years old because that's the age at which you kind of take up the sport. We should point out not everything about F one is so glamorous. Because Formula One is super international, the sport has had its fair share of geopolitical tensions, too. Most recently, the son of a Russian oligarch got pulled out of his driver's seat for the season, and the league canceled the Russian race that was supposed to happen later this year. Batten told us, that tension between money and morality adds more complexity to a show that might just seem like it's about shiny cars. The conflicts of interests between the sources of money and the drivers and the league is just, it's so sticky and I am not at all surprised that Formula One was just like, nope, we can't do this anymore and we absolutely can not host this race in Russia. But it's interesting because a lot I've seen a lot of people argue that, okay, if you're not going to host the race in Russia, why do you still continue to host races in countries where human rights issues are still a big deal in various countries in the Middle East? There was a lot of protests around tracing and Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, these places. So I think it's really, it's really sticky. It's just another layer of chaos within Formula One. If you're intrigued, or you just need something to watch, you're in luck. The fourth season of drive to survive just dropped on Netflix, while the actual Formula One 2022 season starts this weekend. And no doubt, a lot more Americans will be tuning in to both the show and the races. All thanks to this docu series. The viewership numbers have increased by something like 50%. So they've introduced this race in Miami that's already sold out and they are thinking of very shortly following up with another race in Las Vegas. So there might be three races in the U.S. by the end of 2024 or 2023. In fact, Formula One is so popular and growing in the U.S. that a lot of other sports franchises are saying, we want this Netflix treatment too. I think there are developing a similar series about the PGA Tour, which I believe is suffering golf is also a little bit difficult to get into. It's a little bit inaccessible tennis is kind of the same way. And I think if a sport is suffering and kind of in need of eyes, they're going to be all too happy to participate in the same sort of narrative content. I think drive to survive is hold it off and it's widely acknowledged in the league that they did a really good job. So I think with them setting an example, we're going to see this kind of thing a lot more. Honestly, it might take some convincing to get me to watch a reality show about golf. But as for this Formula One season, I'm already gearing up for race day. Thanks for listening to skim this. This podcast was skim by me. Alex Carr, along with our producer will Livingston.

"For decades in Britain, there wasn't much teaching of grammar. But then in 2014, Michael gove, the education secretary, reintroduced it as part of an overhaul of the national curriculum. If you're going to write, if you're going to move, if you're going to persuade, if you're going to inspire, then you need to be able to know how the English language, which is a wonderful instrument, can be used and tuned in order to move hearts in order to persuade people. And you can not be creative unless you understand how sentences are constructed, what words mean. Fans of good old fashioned grammar mechanics rejoiced. But teachers, many of whom hadn't themselves been taught grammar, panicked. Now some new research suggests that the change may have been for nothing. Grammar at school has become a highly politicized issue. Lane green writes Johnson The Economist's column on language. And now there's been a new study using a large randomized controlled trial that has added to the already extensive literature on this subject. It found that teaching kids in English schools to label the bits and pieces of a sentence does not make them better writers. When you say labeled the bits and pieces, you mean knowing what a noun is, what an adverb is that kind of thing. More or less, it also involves a little bit more sophisticated elements like clauses and such when you get into the older years. But this particular study tested 6 and 7 year olds, the control group had only normal classroom teaching and the experimental group used a digital platform called English to learn their grammar lessons, which involved more than mere labeling, but the English group, unfortunately, did no better in this study than those who got the mere labeling instruction when they were asked to write narrative passages. But this really does raise the question again as many studies in the past have done about whether the national curriculum in England, which has been in effect since 2014 for grammar, has gone down a blind alley in trying to make such a big thing out of being able to identify a modal verb or underline a relative clause, for example. Well, yeah, I would like to think I have a reasonable facility with English and I didn't know what a modal verb is. Right. Well, most of us have a knowledge of grammar that is not innate, but it appears very early in our lives, children are able to, for example, form subordinate clauses when they're about two and a half years old while most adults couldn't label a subordinate clause if their life depended on it. So there's a difference between ability to use and ability to describe or label. That said, I wouldn't say we should shelve the teaching of grammar altogether. I think there are some practical benefits. One of them that many people have found is that an explicit knowledge of grammar makes it easier to learn a foreign language and indeed a lot of people maybe you and certainly me learned a lot of their first grammar in foreign language class rather than in English class. For those grammarians who are keen on the high paying tech jobs of the future, I would also point out that there is a field of what's called natural language processing. This is things like automated translation, how digital assistants transcribe your speech and understand what you're asking them to do and give you an answer. So they really AI jobs and their tech jobs, but their jobs that marry up nicely with grammar. So how to do that then in the school years, though, if the overly prescriptive way isn't very helpful, it's still not still other level of AI terminology. Well, it's not so much a matter of prescription versus letting kids write whatever they feel like. I think everyone agrees that there is a sort of standard English that is the target for most English classrooms. And when students deviate from that, you want to steer them back. What seems to not really work is this abstract labeling of the parts underline the modal verb and so forth. One study has shown that when these things are linked up a little more explicitly, they do help students write a bit better. So I think there are reasons to reform how grammar is taught then to scrap it entirely. Not just because it can be practical whether helping you write or helping you get a good job, but also because the science of how words combine to make meaning is really fundamental to human nature. Only humans have human like language even if other animals communicate. So this is really part of who we are..

"Be fed. The territorial defense is a new force which began only a couple of weeks before the invasion began, and the aim of the Churchill defense is for volunteers a civilian volunteers to do their bit if they want to do that. So they get a short amount of training and then they get a gun and then they're deployed to basically second tier positions like guarding blog posts or checkpoints within the city guarding strategic buildings, building some now massive fortified checkpoints. And what that means is that it enables the soldiers with experience and the army to actually go out and do the fighting and the serious defense of the city. But even if you're in the territorial defense, you know, real life goes on. So last week I saw a couple getting married and they said that they had been meaning to get married anyway, but now they were both in territorial defense. So literally Chaplin that married them and all the friends were carrying either kalashnikovs or one or two of them were actually holding the British supplied and law anti tank missiles. And so it was a kind of joyful but bizarre little scene. The situation is really quite different in some of the sort of surrounding area, especially to the northwest and to the northeast of the city. Hitherto small suburban towns. In normal times, it will tell you 25 minutes to drive from the center of Kyiv to the center of urban. You drive out of the city, drive over a bridge over little river called the river up in, because beyond up in, there's a town called butcher, which the Russians have already taken, and when I've been there, there's been the constant sound of artillery, duels, and grad missiles. But so far, the positions have held, I was last there on Saturday. We could hear the fighting in butcher and then Sunday those positions that I visited were shelled and an American journalist was killed a shot dead in ur pin. In the days before that, there had been what they call a green corridor, so people had been allowed to escape and they'd been flowing out of butcher in hundreds and hundreds. I saw one group arriving, but there was one woman leading. She was waving a white flag, and then everybody behind her, they all had white armbands at tied around their arms to indicate that they were a civilians and not to shoot. I mean, it was quite a harrowing scene, seeing these hundreds of people absolutely shell shocked and desperate, arriving, and then the sort of relief on their faces when they were felt they were safe behind Ukrainian lines, but not really knowing what they were going to do. In a three weeks before the war, I went around from Leviathan the west. I went to Odessa, then I went to kharkiv, and then I came here. I imagine that because in that period I asked people continuously, do you think that war is coming and 95% of them said, no, that's nonsense that court is not going to be on war. So now, in Kyiv, people are pretty frightened, but they're defiant. But a lot of people actually don't believe that the Russians are really going to start doing to Kyiv, what they've done to Mario pole, what they've done to har Kyiv. Everybody says,.

"I guess over here though. Wow. Wait. Meanwhile, Russian forces are picking off things in Kyiv. They bombed the main television tower there. How are you crane's getting information and news about what's happening? Well, the tower, unfortunately, it wasn't that big of a problem. I mean, they managed to actually get back up and transmitting quite soon thereafter. Of course, there's also social media. I mean, creating these telegram and Facebook a lot. And in fact, most of the official communication from these various cities is done via Facebook. And so that's been one way to get the word out. Of course, it should be said, there's been a tremendous focus. In fact, just as I'm speaking, you know, I know that there are a few more journalists coming in as we speak to Kyiv. So there's definitely attention. I'm not sure how much of it is filtering back in Russia. I'm not sure how much of Russian sort of understanding is being filtered out to us either. This is a media war and it's becoming a very harsh one I have to say. Is there that fear among Ukrainians that the Internet would go down? Now Eric pin is basically between Russian and Ukrainian forces. There's a big fight brewing there. And we had approached an area where before we had four G service, you don't know. There was nothing, which is to say that the war basically is going to damage communications. It will be harder and harder to get the word out. Another thing I'm curious about are these reports that we're reading about how people across the world, they're booking Airbnb's and Ukraine in cities, buying stuff on Etsy, basically making purchases to try and get money directly into the hands of Ukrainians. How are people in the battle zones getting food and other supplies? I mean, if you go to the south in these areas, things are harder because these cities are now besieged by the Russian forces in many cases. The key for now is fine for the most part. Again, this hasn't changed tremendously for people in key in terms of access to food. I mean, yes, there are shortages, they are not as dire as you may think inside cave. That's going to be changing. Right now, we see the Russians approaching and in those areas where they've approached already there are food shortages already there are problems of electricity and heat, et cetera. And this will be continuing that unfortunately. When you first came in, you mentioned that there was like this calm that there was right before the invasion. People are still going to hipster bars, drinking, generally okay, but how's the city feeling right now? It's very different, of course. I mean, there's a curfew for one thing. So that's changed everything. Now it's 10 o'clock, you know, by 8 o'clock people are, of course, indoors. You don't see any traffic or you see very rarely any traffic. It's just very different. Everything is shuttered. Yes, there are grocery stores. Yes, there are gas stations. Yes, there's a city yes there is heating. It's unclear for how long any of this will last. And it feels like it's a slow motion. Tsunami approaching. I mean, the cliche is, of course, that it's calmest in the eye of the storm. And he of course has been very much the eye of this hold you political fracas that's been going on. And it's been interesting to see how, just as it's been calmest, I think, before the invasion began, it's still the calmest now. The fight hasn't come into key centers. Yet. It might come soon.

Nabi you've now been in Ukraine since early February and you've told us right now some of the stories of the Ukrainians that you've met this past month. How far do you expect their resolve to hold on? I expect that this is going to become an insurgency situation. Just as we saw in Iraq in American army was able to sort of take over the country fairly quickly. But of course it got bogged down in a massive insurgency. And of course, when you talk about the Russian army or you are going back to the Soviet origins, you're talking about Afghanistan and I expect to see the same situation here where you have a very powerful insurgent force ready to go. This is already the sense happening. In the months before this situation, the U.S., the UK and European countries were setting a pipeline of anti tank missiles and anti aircraft missiles, et cetera. And so this pipeline is functioning, right? We're seeing this now playing out as we speak. And so I think if it becomes a situation where Russia tries to take over the entirety of the country or tops the government and you have a full on insurgency, then.

You can see the preparations for these molotov cocktails. This here is chunks of styrofoam being put into the bottle because it's a good sort of accelerant. The beer scene fierce fighting by Ukrainians, nonstop bombardment by Russians. Hope, in fear and chaos. He's criss-crossed Ukraine to hear residents tell their stories. Stories as her country's situation keeps getting more dire. Am Gustav ariano, you're listening to the times, daily news from the LA times. It's Wednesday, March 9th, 2022. Nabi, welcome to the times. Thank you for having me. We last talked to you about two weeks ago just as Russia began its invasion. And back then, many thought Ukraine would quickly give up, but instead you create and resistance has inspired people around the world, how much of what has happened so far surprised you. Well, I mean, the sheer timeline of the invasion has been surprising. There were expectations that key would fall fairly quickly that in any case you would see the Russians being able to take many of these major cities without much of a fight. Only because of the gargantuan number of tanks and armored vehicles and all the material they had assembled. That really hasn't been the case actually. It's been in that sense surprising. Brandon, there is this big call of our own Kyiv and there have been significant advances in the south. And of course in the east as well, but I mean, there is no fighting inside key but at least just yet. And that's a significant victory. I mean, basically every day of not losing is essentially winning. So when you first landed in Ukraine, you went to the Donbass region where separatists there have been waging a war for about 8 years. What was it like? Well, over there, it was interesting because, I mean, the so called Donetsk people's republic and the Luhansk people's republic. These are the two sort of breakaway enclaves that were taken over by the separatists. And of course, recognized by Russia and really supported by Russia throughout, they had occupied two thirds of compass at that point. And it should be said, I mean, you had this big contact line between the two sides and they would constantly fire at each other. Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says Moscow's very alarmed by the situation along the line of control in the Donbass region. It wasn't good on the contact line on both sides, just in the sense that you had just such horrific destruction because of the constant shelling, et cetera. Things calmed down at some point, but it was still what you would call a frozen conflict. And that was reflected in the streets. Like you'd be driving around at some point and then you just take a turn and boom, the road ends, right? Or there's an area where you just can not go because it separates control. Also, this was an area that was really vibrant economically. I mean, the Donbass region was famous for the coal works and that then grew into other industries. And of course, the places dotted with these sprawling projects. These big thermal plants, et cetera. And now, I mean, sadly, it's been mostly denoted of that economic activity..

"Hello, I'm anta Turk and you're listening to tool stories on monocle 24, brought to you by the team behind the urbanist, the show all about the cities we live in. On this week's episode, we head underground in the Ukrainian capital to marvel at the stunning architecture, the city keeps buried in its metro stations. Our travel companion today is Hester underhill. Kyiv's Austin on the metro station is the deepest in the world. Each day, it's creaking Soviet era escalators and thousands of passengers down into the bowels of the city. It's a ride that stretches over a hundred meters below ground, and it takes a full 5 minutes to travel from top to bottom. Passengers then file onto the platforms before climbing aboard dimly lit carriages, lined with scuffed burgundy colored vinyl banquets that hurtle noisily through the city. Remarkably little is changed since Kyiv's subway network was constructed. And it remains a unique time capsule that can be accessed for a ticket that cost just 8 Hoover, which is about 20 cents. The city's metro was completed when Ukraine was under Soviet rule, with many stations built extra deep in order to double as bomb shelters during the Cold War. The first of Kyiv's three metro lines opened in 1960 and the network today stretches for a combined length of 70 kilometers beneath the city. Not only does it remain a practical bit of infrastructure that transports them 1.5 million passengers per day, at least half of the city's population. But it's arguably Kyiv's most impressive feat of art and architecture. Each station has its own particular theme, and is elaborately decorated accordingly. The design of truly abscessation, for example, which was constructed in 1963, is dedicated to power plant workers and both a vast mosaic of a man in overalls raising a glowing atom above his head like a Beacon. The walls of university at station aligned with an array of marble busts of famous Ukrainians, while Olympus gas stations design is inspired by the 1980 Moscow Olympics, with a mosaic of the game's emblem and large metal chandeliers modeled after bicycle wheels. It's a lot of aurora, however, that often tops lists of the world's most beautiful metro stations. The design of father son duo, Boris and Vadim zerin. The station's architecture has a temple like feel to it, with marble pillars, arched ceilings and huge bronze strands, lit with mock candles. It's stacked out with over 80 different mosaics, depicting the history of the Kievan Rus', a powerful empire during the Middle Ages that centered in Kyiv, as well as a large panel depicting the city's patron saint Michael the archangel. Today, however, some of Kyiv metro is ornamental features are under threat. In 2015, Ukraine passed a law that was aimed at ridding the country of remnants of its Soviet past. For the metro, which was awash with communist symbols. This involved the removal of various mosaics, statues, and slogans that were part of the station's design. These new laws have been criticized by many as an attempt to rewrite history, but so far they haven't been so thoroughly enforced as to fully clear the entire metronet of its Soviet era decorations. Passengers can still spot medallions depicting historic communist victories and the odd hammer and sickle hidden within a mural or mosaic..
